#9 – Wendy Clackum & Cindy Barnes


Wendy Clackum grew up in Cleveland, GA where she attended High School and remained a resident until October, 2016.   At that time, she purchased a home in Clermont, GA with her 2 children. Wendy works for Absolute Climate Control in Clermont, GA where she is the office manager.   She has worked there for 2 years and absolutely loves her job. She also loves being a mom & chasing 2 kids around, but when she can get a break from that, she really enjoys being outside. She has a passion for hiking, camping and being on the water.  Wendy wants everyone to know that she is in love with her savior, Jesus Christ, spending as much time as possible with Him and worshiping at Northside Church in Hall County.

Just a tidbit, Wendy haves a true addiction to coffee and could drink it all day.  Wendy is honored to be a part of Dancing with North Georgia Stars and excited to be able to raise money for Enotah CASA, Inc.
